side's rhetoric squares very well with reality. let's get some perspective now from jon corzine, former democratic governor of new jersey, before that a u.s. senator and ceo of goldman sachs. currently he runs an investment firm mf global holdings limited. also carli fiorina, advisor to republican senatorial committee. also former senior campaign adviser to john mccain and before that ceo of hewlett-packard. let me start with you carly. you heard those sound bites. it seems like ending the corporate jet tax hike would be uncontroversial, but it seems like some of your fellow republicans are drawing a hard line on any revenue-raising proposals whatsoever. do you believe we can make a dent without doing that? >> i think first of all with regard to the rhetoric of millionaires and billionaires, the problem is when you look at the fine print what democrats are really talking about is raising taxes on a family that makes $250,000. and if you're a nurse and a fireman raising two kids, you don't feel very wealthy right now. so i think that's the problem. the rhetoric doesn't match the reality.

not expect. jon huntsman said in may he would not self-finance his presidential campaign even though he's rich enough to do that, at least in large part. today he didn't have to file any campaign fund-raising information, because he hasn't been declared for very long, but did say he raised about $4 million and his campaign would just say that he did contribute to his own coffering here. all they'll say, it wasn't a majority. only that what he gave is less than half. jon huntsman is, at least, sort of self-financing here and declaring it, and letting it be known. is that worrying in terms of his chances as a real candidate or encouraging because he has his own money to spend if he wants to? >> first of all, i don't understand the original statement. don't make a statement that you know can be disproved when the sec reports come out. and in terms of his fund-raising, i'm inclined to say, wait until the next cycle. i mean, jon huntsman has only been around for a little bit. i think his opening is that republicans who are not bachmann republicans decide that in the end he might have a bette
there are going to be folks on both sides. the question is, can you get enough votes? and i think jon is absolutely right. it's critically important that we raise the debt ceiling. i think, however, the president of the united states is not a freshman house republican. >> right. >> and as i said, this deal has been on the table for a long time. this problem has been on the table for a long time. i think we need the president of the united states, the leader of the free world, to step forward and lead here. and i think there will be enough bipartisan support to get a deal done. >> has he not been leading on this? i mean, with regards to his most recent conversations? >> you know, disappointingly president obama put forward a budget in february. this was his opportunity to lead, in my opinion that. budget was voted down 97-0. it tackled entitlement reform not a bit. he gave a wonderful speech in april which the congressional budget office said it couldn't score because there weren't enough specifics. the truth is, the president himself has never put a deal on the table. he's asked other
question. christiane, thanks to you. and tomorrow on "this week," arizona republican senator, jon kyl, among the guests. intimately involved in those behind-the-scenes talks. >>> we turn overseas tonight and to a cry for help from one of the most desperate places on earth. hundreds of thousands of families, mothers and children, fleeing the drought in somalia. abc news is the first network to report from the scene. tonight, our lama hasan reports on the disaster in the desert. she's in kenya, at a refugee camp bursting at the seams tonight. >> reporter: they are exhausted. starving and desperate for help. >> the drought is turning one of the world's worst humanitarian crises into a human tragedy of unimaginable proportion. >> reporter: these families are carrying only what they can. their malnourished kids. they have survived an agonizing journey. little food or water, through dusty, desolate land. >> our children are dying. this one just died in my arms. >> reporter: these somali refugees have just arrived here. they've been walking for weeks get food and water. at a nearby camp, we
